Based in Santa Monica, California,
the William H. Hannon Foundation was founded in 1983 by the late
Catholic philanthropist and real estate developer William H. Hannon.
Following his service in World War II, Mr. Hannon returned to
Los Angeles to develop residential communities and commercial
shopping centers across Southern California. Today, the Foundation
carries on Mr. Hannon's goals of supporting Catholic churches
